Reminds me of the time I was injured (sadly not at work) and had to take a month off to get better. I filled out the forms as the guy at the counter told me to (it was a weird situation since I DID go back to work for 2 days, but hurt again so had to take off another 2 weeks). Because of how I filled it out, I got a back a letter saying "we do not have proof that you are still injured" 0_O... Thanks to that, I missed out on my Christmas pay... Best month ever >_>
As for FASFA, guess I've been lucky. When I used it after I moved, it worked out since I was basically a blank slate.

I do believe that having a general knowledge about different things is a good idea, especially if you decide to change majors. And yes, some pre-reqs are relevant to what you are actually taking. Things like Psych 101 can apply to anything, really, and is a good general knowledge to have. However.... the biggest BS of a pre-req is this one university I know of: Apparently if you want to take a business program with them, you need 2 pre-reqs... of physical education. I'm not even joking. Do they want their business people to not be lazy or something? I don't understand... However something like bowling can count towards one of the classes. If you aren't even into that, a waste of time and money... And just plain STUPID.
